VOLUNTEER AS A SNOW ANGEL
Once the winter weather hits, getting around can be difficult. This is an especially difficult time for seniors, people with limited mobility, and those with other disabilities.
Snow Angels aims to pair those who need a little extra help in the winter months with someone willing to help a neighbour.

The goal of Snow Angels is to ensure that seniors, along with anyone with a disability that prevents them from snow clearing, will not become completely isolated in the winter months. We want to pair seniors with volunteers who are willing to clear their snow to ensure that they have safe and easy access to their homes so that they can come and go as they need.
Carbonear Food Bank covers about 70 coastal communities stretched out along THE BACCALIEU TRAIL on a peninsula that forms the north side of Conception Bay and the south side of Trinity Bay – Whitbourne to Carbonear to Lower Island Cove to Chapel Arm (the entire loop). Matches will depend on availability of interested volunteers and clients in the same area.
